DescriptionThe spread of bark beetle outbreaks in the Tatra Mountains was explored by using both terrestrial and remote sensing techniques. Both approaches have proven to be useful for studying spatial patterns of bark beetle population dynamics. The terrestrial methods were applied on existing forestry databases. Vegetation change analysis (image differentiation), digital elevation model, and stand characteristics have been integrated in the remote sensing part of the study. Results have revealed that the spatial pattern of bark beetle spread depends on the phase of the outbreak and on the insolation (amount of incoming solar radiation) of stands on mountain slopes and, specifically on the bark beetle spots themselves.
